    How long is your security clearance good for?

    I was under the impression that your medical was good for 2 years but security was good for three years? But today I've been told something to the contrary...anyone have an official answer? Thanks!

    well that blows donkey balls....I certainly thought it was 3 years for security clearances....why didn't my rep have me start doing the work for both of them as opposed to waiting for the medical to come back? I could have had the security clearance done and back by now!!

    wouldn't that have been the same as the medical? You were an Atlanta PEPC guy right? I thought they went off the day we applied which was the end of August...or is that not right.

    The initial medical clearances are normally clear as soon as the tests come back ok. The initial security clearance isn't issued for a few months while they're checking on everything. So if you start all your clearances the first time around in August (like me in 09) you'll go through all the medical refresh in August/September and you probably wont get security refresh until November, because it took till November to issue your initial security.
    My guess is that if anyone has to wait another two years and go through the clearances again they'd do the medical like normal but the security wouldn't be for like 7 months after.

    It costs money. If you fail your medical there is no reason to do another security check.

    My experience was that the initial security clearance only took about 5 or 7 days to be approved (excellent/very good credit. relatively boring life). I think everyone may be like that as long as your offense is more than 5 years old and you have disclosed everything. Want to avoid a delay, then disclose everything!
    From TowerFlower:

    OTS--Don't think that they are all just dumb high school grads. Some military and CTIs also applied under these openings; also many a pilot have applied---a group who know the rules. Many are college grads trying for something different. I have worked with some OTS and they were excellent controllers.
